Unfortunately not. I think even if you use something like NetCentric's
CommonLook it is going to be a manual process of typing in the correct

Subject: [Athen] Scripting editing of tagged PDF files

Hi all,

I have a PDF that is tagged and has good structure. However the heading tags
and image alternate text have been manually entered and many of them have
problems related to capitalization, plus a few spelling errors. Here's an
example heading:

unIversal desIgn guIdelInes

This is a very large document, and these problems will take days to correct
manually. Is anyone aware of a utility that would support rule-based
correction of PDF tagged structure?
